During those final, endless weeks of the school year, just when I needed it most, got a subscription email from Bonnie Glendinning of ThrivingArtistAcademy.com inviting me to join a closed Facebook group called The Artists' Mentor and to check out one of the photography courses that was being offered. The course, titled The Present Perfect, was a short seven day exploration of Mindfulness, using photography as a tool.
Even though May is one of the busiest months of my school year, the thought of taking a few minutes a day for seven days to do something for my own artistic soul, was very appealing. So I signed up, followed through, and loved every bit of the experience! Jen Kiaba, professional photographer, educator, and digital marketer, not only presented new ways to explore photography as an expressive art form, she also provided helpful, encouraging comments on every post made by one of her students.
